I had a busy weekend. First, I unloaded 22 bags of Sakrete from my stranded cargo trailer and put it into my baby trailer to be returned to Lowe's. The trailer weighed 1850 lbs like this...



My trip to Lowe's was only four miles on a quiet Saturday morning. After dropping those off, I then proceeded to remove ~3000 lbs of soil/gravel mix that I accidentally allowed to be used as fill after a driveway project. Here is the heaviest of those three loads...



Those loads each traveled 40 miles to two homes. I may even remove another 1000 lbs. Next, I'll be regrading the lawn to see if I can refill the driveway backfill area with excess soil from other areas. If not, then I'll be visiting a nursery to bring home fresh top soil.

I think he meant the tire poke, flinging debris up the sides.
Hmm.... Didn't think of that. Eh.... Not worried about it.

No doubt there are places that get colder. Even here for me tomorrow it's supposed to be high of -14, overnight low of -30, with wind chills in the -50 to -60 range. Even for Minnesota it seldom gets this bad.

Either way, -9 is still pretty cold for a "performance" car. Let's just say my oil temp barely started reading by the time I got to work.

All-in-all though I'm pretty impressed on how the mk7 operates in extreme cold. I remember my mk4 shifter was a lot stickier in cold temps.
